Pros

Good starting wage for an operator 12 or higher, depending on shifts
Nice team leads and management

Cons

Seniority. Seems like you have to work at Simplot for 20 years to snag any job or a shift. YOu can get booted from any shift from someone who as worked longer there.
HR is a mess
Schedules are awful, they have 4, day, evening, nights and rotation

Advice to Management

Fix the schedules up, hire part timers for weekends, get rid of the rotating shifts. Be flexible with schedules and quit the whole seniority thing. Performance should matter. Even sonorities don't make much compared to new hire. Find a way for people to get out of the Union.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are competitive for the area. The company is very proactive with respect to systems and technology, especially for the industry they are in.

    Cons

    Succession planning and career mapping are virtually non-existent. The company frequently hires at all levels from outside and rarely promotes from within. Politics run extremely deep and hinder the company from capitalizing on the systems and infrastructure that exists.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion must come from within if the company wishes to start succeeding due to its talent and not to market-driven circumstances. Succession planning needs to actually be implemented, not just talked about.


  2. "Collaborative culture"
